Can Snow Plow Insurance Be Combined with Lawn Care Insurance?
Insurance companies recognize that many landscaping and lawn care companies in Worcester, MA provide snow plowing services during the winter months. For this reason, insurers often make it easy to combine snow plow and lawn care coverage into one policy.
Businesses that offer both snow plowing and landscaping services often find that purchase a combined policy is more affordable than getting two separate policies.
Can Landscapers Cancel Their Insurance During the Off Months?
Landscaping companies that don’t offer snow plowing or other services during the winter may technically be able to cancel their lawn care policy when they shut down for the off-season. This practice, however, usually isn’t advisable.
Without an active insurance policy, a business may have no recourse if equipment is damaged while in storage. Additionally, the gap in coverage may lead to increased premiums in the future. In some cases, the increased premiums will cost more than anything that’s saved by not paying premiums during the off-months.
Instead, businesses are often better off reducing — but not canceling — their coverage if they shut down operations for the winter. This method usually provides premium savings during the off-season without creating a coverage gap that could cause rates to go up in the future. (It’s important to re-adjust coverages when work resumes in the spring.)
